A Christmas Card

I made this Christmas card using this adorable image from Whoopsi Daisy. I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils. I added crystal stickles on all the white fur on the image. The sketch that I used is from the challenge at Stamp, Scrap & Doodle. The base of my card is green. Then each layer of green cardstock is backed in white cardstock. I punched a strip of white cardstock using a lace heart border punch from Martha Stewart. I added crystal stickles to all the white cardstock including the punched border. I punched 2 snowflakes out of white and 2 smaller snowflakes out of green. I added a green snowflake to the center of the white snowflake. I added crystal stickles to the white snowflake and green stickles to the green snowflake. Then I added a pearl into the center of the snowflakes. I added the sentiment, "May this Christmas be as special as you are", backed in green and then in white to the bottom left corner. I added crystal stickles to the white around the sentiment. I finished my card by adding 3 pearls to the upper left corner and a green and white ribbon to the right side of my card.
